Hard to start

All of a sudden my 2000 jeep Cherokee (that about 4 years ago I swapped the motor for a4. 0 out of a1996 grand Cherokee) got hard to start. After some trouble shooting replaced plugs and such, the problem still persisted. So I notice that the belt had started to squeal constantly and Lo and behold the bleeping crank pulley is forward a good 1/4-5/16of the other pullys. I checked the bolt and it's tight. Disaster has struck I'm afraid. Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome before I tear into it.

Re: Hard to start

Is it hard to start, because it turns over slowly? When the accessory belt starts slipping, the alternator will also charge less the battery and you will end up with a low battery charge.
The accessory belt has an automatic tensioner. Does it work properly? Is the belt not stretched too far and the tensioner is at the end of its travel?
